A fun experience

Have to agree with tonyr058 comments. Fixed menu with a chicken main course followed by a lamb tagine ! Plus starters and pudding ! As many have commented, the amount of food is overwhelming and we left an embarrassing amount. Not much comment about wine which is included in the meal price. Not... read more

This restaurant is quite tricky to find and I personally recommend getting a taxi there for safety as it appears to be in a bit of a rough part of the Medina. I am not sure if it seemed worse to us because we were in the middle of a power cut, so as we were being drove down the... More

myself and a friend were recommended this restaurant which is inside an old palace. From the outside your taken down a dark alleyway and being two women on our own we actually thought at first we were going to be robbed or something. The outside was a tiny little hidden doorway on a deserted street but once you walk inside... More

You have to go This Restaurant is a must if you are in town, but don’t eat anything that day before going, it’s a real treat to taste so much great food, There is no menu everyone gets the same, and there is plenty of it, each course is super but try not to eat too much from the taster... More

Here we are, in Marrakech. We got a big recommendation for this place by some friends who've been many times there before. In short, the ambiance is 5/5, the service is 5/5, the food is 2.5/5.... Why don't they up the food a bit more, I wonder.... The thing is; you get the fixed menu, a selection of starters, then... More

Forget about the vast amount of food that in reality is a bit Meh this restaurant is a must when visiting Marrakech. I came first time in 2010 and repeated it again with my daughter. This is by no means a gastronomic experience but the service and the incredible decor more than make up for the ok food. The wine... More

The night is more 'Moroccan theme night' than a gastronomic experience. BUT don't let that put you off. the house is quite spectacular (as is the quantity of food offered). It really is a great way to spend a night in Marrakech

This is a great restaurant with a set menu, the decor is simply amazing with a great terrace view over the whole of Marrakech. Local musicians are playing music which was a delight and the food was so tasty.
